Have your say on Queensland's retail shop leasing legislation

Activity occured prior to the current government

The department is conducting a statutory review of the Retail Shop Leases Act 1994 (the Act), including the Retail Shop Leases Regulation 2006 (the Regulation).

The Act governs retail shop leases in Queensland, including mandatory minimum standards for such leases and a low cost dispute resolution process for retail tenancy disputes.

The purpose of the review is to examine whether the provisions of the Act are appropriate for the Queensland retail leasing environment.

A discussion paper has been developed to facilitate public input into the review. The discussion paper gives an overview of the Act and poses questions about the Act and retail shop leasing issues in Queensland.

Feedback is encouraged in relation to these questions as well as any matter relevant to the regulation of retail shop leases in Queensland. In particular, information about issues and problems experienced with the current provisions of the Act and suggestions for improvements to the Act, including how to make the Act more effective and to reduce the regulatory burden on business, are sought.  

Feedback or submissions received from retail tenants, landlords and other interested individuals or organisations will assist in the development of options for appropriate amendments to the Act.

Consultation closes on 30 January 2012.
